Gros Ventre Cellars
Gros Ventre is a tiny, family-owned winery making Pinot Noir from cool climate vineyards along the Sonoma Coast and Anderson Valley. This winery was hatched on the banks of the Gros Ventre River in Jackson Hole, where the owners met in 2003. Little did they know that one day winemaker Chris Pittenger would nick-name his wife's pregnant belly “Gros Ventre” (French for “big belly”) and soon thereafter name the brand the same. Chris' winemaking style is influenced by years spent getting dirty in the cellars of respected wineries like Biale, Torbreck, Williams-Selyem, and Marcassin. He also crafts the Rhone-inspired wines for Skinner Vineyards.
